Central Market Hall, Budapest

(3.9/5 based on 4,200+ reviews on the web)
The largest and oldest indoor market in the city, Central Market Hall, offers a variety of food, candy, spirits, and souvenir stalls. Let your mouth water as you wander the first floor of this Neo-Gothic building past fresh produce, meats, sweets, spices, liquors, and wine. The second floor houses mostly souvenir shops and eateries, and the basement features butcher shops, a fish market, and pickled goods. Built in 1897 and restored in the 1990s, this market was the idea of Budapest's first mayor, Karoly Kamermayer, and is now one of the city's biggest tourist attractions. Try local specialties, such as deep-fried lángos. Put Central Market Hall on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Budapest travel itinerary planner.

  • The market hall is a really cool building with lots of things to look at upstairs, but also buy if you're looking for food instead of eating at resturants if you are visiting. Half the time I didn't know what I was buying in terms of sliced meat or cheese, but always it tasted delicious! And it's extremely affordable! Just watch for gypsies on the outside area etc.
  • Beautiful indoor market building. Super clean. Fresh fruit and vegie and meat down stairs. Bisto and souviners upstairs.
  • Unique market hall. Worth visiting. Make sure you buy some Hungarian sausage or at least some cracklings that are available at several stands, made either of porc or goose. Goose is slightly more expensive, but worth the money. Buon Appetite!
